There are 3 types of body art. Tattoos, Piercings, and body painting. Of the 3 the painting is the newest and safest, and also the coolest. Piercings leave marks that can be permanent. Tattoos are permanent. The painting will wash off when you don't want it anymore.


Tattoos and piercings are people making a statement about something. Or a tribute to someone or something. Body painting with a brush and the latest airbrush body painting is art. The artist gets their work seen by many people as the art moves around. The models become the artist's canvas.

Tattoos

I will use my son in law as the example for tattoos. He started on the chest and arms, he was an angry person at the time. He wanted the tattoos to show the evil and spirits representing his family members who had died. He became a Christian and changed the whole focus of his tattoos. His back shows what he wanted to portray after he became a Christian. If You want you can see a video testimony that tells all he went through and how he changed here.

What is body piercing?

Body piercing can be on any part of the body. Some places are more likely than others. Ears, lips, tongue, nipples, and eyebrows are the most common. Body piercing is puncturing or cutting a part of the body to create an opening to insert a piece of metal. Years ago, this was only pierced ears. Since then, it has changed to any part of the body. Some of the piercings are interesting, even cool. Others make you say, why would you do that to yourself? The reasons people do piercings are.

  • People want to be different. They want to stand out as an individual. The same reason that people die their hair bright colors.
  • Some cultures do it to respect their culture or rituals
  • Some do it out of rebellion against parents or society in general.
  • Drawing attention to themselves is another reason that people pierce themselves.
  • Enhancing their looks is another reason.

Some of the reasons are the same as why people get tattoos. But tattoos most of the time have a story to them or some special meaning to the person getting them.

Painting and Airbrush Body Art

The last and probably the most impressive is the airbrush body art. It allows artists to show off their work on a very different canvas. There are truly some talented artists that do this work. The one to the left is a paining on a back. Very impressive artwork. The same people that can do this excellent work on cars or trucks or railroad cars, are just using a different canvas.

conclusion

It's all art.  Some of it is very cool, some of it tells you who the person is.  Some of it is very disturbing to look at.  It all is their way of expressing something about them and their personality and their desire to be unique.

Interesting post!

Bodypainting however isn't new,it's over 4,000 years old and is currently enjoying a much needed revival. It's also the oldest form of body art in the world.

This is a cool hub. I have seen some really crazy types of body art or body modification as some like to call it. There are people out there doing stuff that makes piercing look pretty tame. Me, I'm in for tattoos, and I really like seeing them on other people if they're done well.

Piercing is Barbarian ,Tattoo is better but the problem is when after years the body is not very tight -it is not the same beautiful-So i think henna its the better solution for every one .Good pictures
